: A Traveller in Search of Music

PHILIP THORNTON
THIS WEEK Mr. Thornton is going to take his listeners in search of the music of Northern India. He will play and sing tunes that he has collected upon his strange assortment of instruments, and will try to give as vividly as he can an idea of this type of music. He confesses that the music of India has a greater appeal to """ in many respects than that of his own country - and he certainty has the power of entering into the very spin of a technique completely different from what we are used to in Europe.

THE UNEMPLOYED MAN who is to tell his story at the microphone tonight will represent a class that is often overlooked. It consists of the men who work with their brains rather than their hands, and may be roughly divided into two—the executive and the clerical.
There is no unemployment insurance for them if their salary is over £250 a year. They are a type most difficult to help because they are most diffident to ask for it. They are out of work in practically every large city in Britain because the supply is greater than the demand.
They are, many of them, married, with children to clothe and educate. They have to dress well because their posts have depended on their appearance, and, out of work, they have stil) to dress well, or they have not a hope of getting another job. For some of them it has been impossible to save. Those that have been able to do so have had their nest-egg diminished by trade depression, or have had to live on it to keep things going until there is nothing left.
There are men walking about looking for jobs who have held responsible and high-salaried positions which they have lost through their firms failing. Their case is possibly as hard as that of any class of the unemployed.

: 'What the Fairies Know'

A Fantasy for Midsummer Eve
Written by JACQUES ABADY
MUSIC by TEMPLE ABADY
COMPETITORS in the Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon have many difficulties to face in their passage towards the Finals. Not the least of these, in many instances, is their position in the ' Draw' : for it often happens that a player, or pair, would go a long way, and in certain cases reach the Final, were it not for the fact that they had to play and defeat some player of outstanding merit in an early round.
For this reason, to prevent the giants cutting one another's heads off too soon, the authorities have in recent years ' seeded ' the Draw, which means that the great ones are deliberately placed in different sections. Colonel Brand is going to tell us all about this and a lot more in his talk this evening.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
